Not sure what to do with this newly acquired Gibson. I believe it was their 6th one made as the serial number is 2506. The bottom shell has a piece out of it where it is very thin and probably dropped at one time.
Are they worth more as they are or repaired and restored? Does anyone know if these are mahogany or redwood?
There are 2 tabs missing at the bottom for the 2 larger strings, should I try to make a new one? I believe this one may be missing a Gibson plate that covers the strings at the bottom also.
Anyone have an idea on the value? Thanks, Bart
